Poem: False Hope

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

False hope is about his words making her feel like a squashed bug. Her heart left bleeding on the floor. She had no reason to suspect these unbearable words. Her world is crumbling. She has no where to turn. She realizes he gave her false hope and deceitful promises everyday.

"Back To Me" by 3 Doors Down

poem-false-hope

She feels like a bug
being squashed to death
on the bottom of his shoe,
when his words slice her heart
leaving her bleeding on the floor.

She has no reason to suspect
these unbearable words to be spoken
from his lips,
when their passion is burning out of control
like a wildfire.

She is lost
with her world crumbling
beneath her feet,
her mind bewildered
with no where left to turn.

A nothingness,
she has not felt before
embraces her bleeding heart,
as she realizes all the false hope
and deceitful promises he made,
each and every day.
